A mouthguard, properly fitted, should be worn during any contact sport or activities where there is risk of an injury to the face e.g. football, hockey, volleyball, soccer etc. Sport, leisure and recreation activities are the most common cause of dental injuries. Without a mouthguard, sports injuries and accidents can result in painful and expensive damage and injury to the gum, lips or teeth, tooth fractures and jaw fractures.
Wearing an appropriately designed and made mouthguard while participating in sport will protect against dental injuries. Players of all ages involved in sports and activities where they are at risk of an injury to the face should protect their teeth with a properly fitted mouthguard.
Night guards don’t stop the grinding (Bruxism) or clenching. We recommend these be made when we see evidence you need to protect your teeth from further wear and tear on your teeth and jaw joints (Temporo-Mandibular Joint -TMJ) against these forces while you sleep.
Many clients are unaware they are grinding/clenching during the night. Apart from dental evidence we observe, more severe symptoms may present as headaches in the morning, teeth sensitivity, damage to your TMJ (clicking jaw) flattened chipped teeth, or a grumpy partner because your grinding woke them during the night!
While dental night guards provide a measure of protection, we recommend clients look into the reasons WHY they are grinding/ clenching. A common reason is stress.
